Updating poetry package manager from 1.1 to 1.2 1.3 or above

I got a problem when try to update my poetry package manager from 1.1 to 1.2 1.3 or above. Here is how I solve it

Normally we can just update our poetry version like this

poetry self update

But not if you have poetry < 1.1 version

If you look at the poetry documentation there’s this warning

Poetry 1.1 series releases are not able to update in-place to 1.2 or newer series releases. To migrate to newer releases, uninstall using your original install method, and then reinstall using the methods above.

How to uninstall

Uninstall the poetry version first. It depends on how you install it before. I personally forget how I Install it , but I look at my zsh config file where is my poetry located, and I manually delete that folder.

Tips if you can’t uninstall it:

Reinstall current poetry version

You may want to refer to official poetry doc for this.

But here’s what I did:

// Install latest stable poetry
curl -sSL | python3 -

Add Poetry to your PATH
The installer creates a poetry wrapper in a well-known, platform-specific directory:

$HOME/.local/bin on Unix.
%APPDATA%\Python\Scripts on Windows.
$POETRY_HOME/bin if $POETRY_HOME is set.

Check poetry is installed

poetry --version
